    I graduated from the evening Mpls RN program at St. Kate's in December 2007. Took the boards at the end of January and passed. Honestly, I thought when I started that my journey would never end - and it went by very fast. I liked the program - there are up's and down's, as for the financial aid I figure my future is worth the money and I still believe that. We'll see if I still feel the same when the loan notices start coming in. As a fellow Katie - good luck! You can do it!

    How much did you end up taking out in loans, even with your financial aid? If you dont mind me asking. Have you found a job yet? Thanks for your input

    Hi Jeannai,

    I haven't gotten the final total for loans, but if I were to guess it would be between $15,000 - $20,000. I have a straight nights position with a $4.00 shift differential on top of the $26.34 per hr. I figure I can work a few extra shifts to help make double payments. I have a job with Fairview which I am really excited about because they offer a program with St. Kate's for the RN to BSN program with tuition reimbursement after you have worked for 6 months with them. Clinicals are done at the hospital you have a job at - which makes it easier.

    MN RN- When you attended St. Kate's, were any of your classes ever on-line? I'm just wondering if I'll ever get a break in the week from the one way hour drive. Thanks a bunch!

    Hi Lemay,

    Yes, I did have one online class that is required for graduation. It's called a CIL class and I took the month of January, which was nice because I didn't have to take it with any other classes. I hear you on the commute it was about a 45 min. drive for me. It goes by fast though - before you know it you'll be done! :wink2:

    Good luck Jeannai!
    I'm not in the program, but I'm thinking of applying.
    On the website it doesn't say anything about the 2year program being day or evening. Do you get this option? Also is it a full-time commitment when you're in? I would hope i'd still have time to work some. Specially because of all these loans. Thanks much! Cari.
